New Westminster’s Inclusive Nail Space

This isn’t a “Nail Salon”, friends! This is a private Nail Artistry studio with a chill, 1 on 1 focus on self care. I’m a hands-only Nail Technician, and I specialize in helping folks grow their own healthy nails with the help of ultra high-quality gel! I pride myself on having a clean, modern space with all of the latest amenities and products to keep things fresh & fun! My studio is, has always been and will always be Trans & Queer-embracing, science-adopting and patriarchy-smashing! If you like to chat while having your nails done, I’m here for it! If you like to just sit, tune out & listen to podcasts, that’s great, too!

If salon settings aren’t your thing at all, but you still love fun nails, I have a Custom Press-On line for that, too! Just click the big pink button at the top left and shop to your heart’s content!

Hey, It’s Me!

If you love crime podcasts, Simpsons quotes, and adorable pugs – we’re meant to be!

I’m Cor (she/they) and I own the joint! I am an award-winning, independent, Blanche MacDonald certified Nail Artist of 15 years based in New Westminster, BC! My private shop is a body positive, inclusive, anti-racist, Queer & Trans safe space where you can genuinely relax and vibe.

When I’m not slaying the day away doing nails, you can catch me hanging out with my partner, pug and an iced coffee, out at local Drag shows, sipping fancy cocktails, lifting heavy weights and cycling around New West or the seawall!


You’ll notice that most of the nails I do are short, sweet and on point. I’ve fallen into my niche – just by chance, and have steadily embraced my role of Nail Growth Specialist! Now I thrive on showing the industry that nails don’t have to be long to be sleek and gorgeous.

Whatever your preferred length – if you’re looking for quality nails from an educated Nail Artist who loves their job, you’ve found it!

 Studio Policies


Policies are to ensure the well-being of everyone coming through the door and the smooth operation of my little New Westminster shop. Please take a read so we’re all on the same page! These basic policies apply to classes as well.

Health is more important than nails, full stop.

If you have symptoms of ANY sickness whatsoever, if you have travelled by plane within the past 7 days or if you have been in close contact with someone who is sick, (anyone in your household, people at work):

You MUST reschedule your appointment – no exceptions. No tolerance. I have clients and family who are immunocompromised and I will not risk infecting them. If you come in for your appointment and have any symptoms of illness, you will be turned away, and not rescheduled. If I am sick, I will let you know ASAP so we can reschedule.

I require disposable masks to be worn in the studio in the fall/winter. If that’s not for you, we’re not a good fit.

Other salons’ work:

I don’t fill or remove other nail salons’ work for many reasons. Please make sure to come to your appointment with bare nails, unless we have discussed arrangements beforehand.

Children & extra guests:

No kids in the shop. I don’t do kids’ nail services (anyone under 18) and it’s not a safe place for them to be. Please, no extra guests at your appointment, there is no waiting area for them to sit.

No-shows, cancellations and late arrivals:

I require 48 hours’ notice of any cancellation of your scheduled appointment. Any less than 48 hours’ notice will require an a late cancellation fee of $20, to be paid before your next appointment is booked. Same-day or no-show, no call appointments will be required to pay the full amount of their service (billed at 1 hour of service time, or $60) before re-scheduling and may forfeit future opportunity to book appointments. In short, no-shows without a valid emergency aren’t acceptable. Guests who are late to their appointment may have to have abbreviated services to keep other clients on schedule. If you are 15 minutes late or more, you will be asked to reschedule, applying the late cancellation feee.


Everyone in this space will treat each other with respect and courtesy, always. This includes respect for the personal choices that I make for my business to keep everyone safe. This is an inclusive studio where everyone is welcome. Zero tolerance for racism, queerphobia and Transphobia of any kind.

**Black Cherry Nails reserves the right to refuse service to anyone at any time.**
